Ugh. Typical winter storm in Texas. We have had just a touch of snow, maybe an inch or two but it is just so crappy. The wind is blowing about 40 mph with gusts higher than that and the wind chill is about 1 degree. I went outside for about 5 minutes, just long enough to snap a few pictures, and by the time I came back in, my fingers were so numb that I could not unzip my coat. My face and mouth are gritty and full of dirt and it is just an all around miserable day. Why can't we have nice snowstorms like everyone else?

This is why it doesn't accumulate, the wind carries it away.


The horses are all hiding on the south side of the barn, out of the wind.


And now they all have blankets..................of snow, that is.

Flipper


Dobe, Flash, and John


Poor little Olen


Flipper and Koda


John with the wind blowing his locks




Flipper and Koda again




Nester and Tiny hiding from the wind


Denny was feeling rather good today


Dobe just wants to be left alone


And those are all the pix I was able to manage. My fingers were so cold, I could no longer push the button and had to come back in. :?

Oh, that's okay. Bessie and Rafe are in a separate pen with Pokey and I was too cold to get any pix of them. Maybe later this afternoon. :D

Ahhhhh...yes...gotta love those 'desert' winds...we get those torturous winds in the area of AZ that I live as well...it's horrible! Some nights it sounds like the windows are just going to bust in!!! Yuck! But Great pics!

My mare absolutely hates the wind...she won't venture out of her shed when it's that windy, unless she's got her 'wind gear' on (a waterproof sheet, and her fly mask)...pansy...but then, come to think of it, I'm not out much in that weather either! Lol! I'd rather take cold MN weather, than these winds!!!Lol!

AWW, frosted ponycakes! I wish it was cold and dry here, we keep getting big fat rain, the kind that won't soak into the ground because it is too dense and coming down too fast, MISERY! Poor Tom and Satin are covered in mud, the pasture is soup, and we don't have a shelter built yet so they get to be wet ponies...

We got that same storm Jen- heres looking down our road. I was froze solid by the time I made it back into the house. The drifts are huge now, they were just babies when I snapped this. You can kinda see the snow coming down sideways

I can understand that. I'm in Mid TN. It stinks! Not to mention with all the rain and such, my mares stall stays wet. But we're working on another barn, so its not too much longer.
